Welcome friends, to our new journey of considering the queries, both personally and corporately this year. May this be an exercise of spirit, heart, and mind as we gather into openness, ready to discover what God's Spirit has to speak into us. If you've found someone to share the queries with, be ready to discover new ideas you'll encounter from another perspective. If you're taking this journey alone, perhaps you'll discover a new vantage point in your own walk of faith.
from *Advices and queries; *Britain Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice, 5th edition, @ 1995-2015
- Take heed, dear Friends, to the promptings of love and truth in your hearts. Trust them as the leadings of God whose Light shows us our darkness and brings us to new life.
What do these words mean... 'take heed', 'promptings', 'truth', 'leadings', 'Light', 'darkness', 'new life'? Examine them individually, and then as a whole in this first, significant query.
